GCSE English Language Revision Postcard 24: Using Discourse Markers

In the writing section of the AQA GCSE English Language paper students need to demonstrate confident use of discourse markers (see below for examples). This is a short revision task to get students to think of appropriate discourse markers to use by way of a reminder, especially if they are doing the foundation paper and this doesn’t come naturally for them. You’d need to check chosen discourse markers were used well in context, and it might be that a student tries to “shove them in” and needs some help to refine the way they do that.
